Green Globe Certification launched its new sustainable travel website, www.greenglobe.travel. The site provides sustainable hotels, cruise ships, meeting facilities, tour operators, and attractions in the world’s most exciting travel locations. Businesses are displayed in alphabetical order with description, pictures, location and map, contact information, and links to booking. Users can also search by property name, country, or category. All properties are Green Globe members that are already certified or in the process of being certified for their sustainability achievements.
Green Globe Certification’s CEO, Guido Bauer, said: “Our travel website complements our recently introduced Green Globe App for Apple and Android mobile devices. Sustainable tourism is becoming more and more important for travelers, and our website caters exactly to those needs. We want to make sure that travelers – business or leisure – meeting planners and travel agents can easily and quickly find ‘green’ accommodation, conference centers, and other travel options.”
“All businesses featured on the site actively protect the environment and preserve local culture, contribute to a healthy community, create positive work conditions, and use resources in a responsible way. They meet the highest level of sustainable operations,” added Mr. Bauer.
Green Globe members are rigorously certified under 41 criteria, which have been accepted globally as the definition of sustainable travel and tourism. To complete the certification process, these members undergo an independent on-site audit to ensure that their sustainability efforts have been thoroughly inspected.
